I’m sure there will be more busts in this photoset.
There were these little alcoves all around the room with statues. I wish I could remember whether the guide mentioned if the statues were there in the palace’s heyday or not…the alcoves would be a great place to have a tiny modicum of privacy. (Not that that seemed to matter, as the king regularly had visitors in his chambers whilst he was getting dressed, used the chamber pot, or bathed. I remember THAT because I remember thinking “ugh, glad I’m not the king in those times”.
